If you just bought a new pair of cropped pants or another item you love, getting it stained might be frustrating. Because you also have to deal with oily stains. Fortunately, I figured out the answer to this problem a while ago and it has been my go-to solution against oily stains every since. I have used this method so many times with such great results, I figured it was time I shared it with all of you.
DIY Solution To Get Oily Stains Out Of Dark-Colored Clothes
For this, you will need the following ingredients:
– Dawn dishwashing liquid
– hydrogen peroxide
– baking soda
– an old toothbrush
1st – spray the stain with hydrogen peroxide until it is completely saturated.
2nd – put a small amount of Dawn liquid on the stain. For a small stain, a couple of drops will do ya.
3rd – sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda on top.
4th – take your toothbrush and scrub!
If it’s too runny, add a little more baking soda, it’s too thick, add a little more hydrogen peroxide. You want a nice paste.
Scrub the stain well and then walk away. Let sit for 1/2 hour to 1 hour, then launder as usual.
When it came out, grease was gone and pants were still the lovely coral color I’d initially fallen in love with! Now all they needed was a good pressing.
I call that a happy ending!
